Tony Parker Paid $5,000 to Fly With a Jet-Pack

So, Tony Parker is keeping busy this summer, and taking risks that the San Antonio Spurs can’t really say or do anything about during the NBA lockout. From the Express-News: “There’s supposed to be no formal communication between players and their teams during this lockout. Team officials aren’t even supposed to be reading the web pages or twitter accounts of their wayward employees. But if they could, I can only imagine some of the comments that might be coming from Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford as they look at this picture. Spurs point guard Tony Parker spent part of a day earlier this week trying out a jet pack as he soared over a French beach.”

    They could have saved their 5G. I’d have done that for free. Sheeeeeit, I’d have given them money to try that out.

    You’d think if he had a jet pack he could have hid his affairs with other women better? Faster getaway?

    I have a feeling the people who killed the electric car also killed the jet pack.
